Before Mann Made Climate Change

Prior to the intervention of humans, the climate was stable and Chicago was buried under a mile of ice.

    Mann should have used tree rings from labradorean.

    Here is evidence after the last ice age that man is causing rapid climate change. 🙂

    Abstract – E. Davis et. al.- September 2006
    An Andean ice-core record of a Middle Holocene mega-droughtin North Africa and Asia

    A large dust peak, dated ~4500 years ago, is contemporaneous with a widespread and prolonged drought that apparently extended from North Africa to eastern China, evidence of which occurs in historical, archeological and paleoclimatic records. This event may have been associated with several centuries of weak Asian/Indian/African monsoons, possibly linked with a protracted cooling in the North Atlantic…..

    Abstract – Martin Jakobsson et. al. – December 2010
    Arctic sea ice cover was strongly reduced during most of the early Holocene and there appear to have been periods of ice free summers in the central Arctic Ocean. This has important consequences for our understanding of the recent trend of declining sea ice…..

    Extreme and persistent drought in California and Patagonia during mediaeval time
    California’s Sierra Nevada experienced extremely severe drought conditions for more than two centuries before ad ~ 1112 and for more than 140 years before ad ~ 1350…I also present similar evidence from Patagonia of drought conditions coinciding with at least the first of these dry periods in California….

    Simulation of an abrupt change in Saharan vegetation in the Mid-Holocene

    Climate variability during the present interglacial, the Holocene, has been rather smooth in comparison with the last glacial. Nevertheless, there were some rather abrupt climate changes. One of these changes, the desertification of the Saharan and Arabian region some 4–6 thousand years ago,….

    Atlantic Forcing of Persistent Drought in West Africa
    …We find that intervals of severe drought lasting for periods ranging from decades to centuries are characteristic of the monsoon and are linked to natural variations in Atlantic temperatures. Thus the severe drought of recent decades is not anomalous in the context of the past three millennia,…..

  3. Eric Simpson says:

    There was a time 5 to 10 years ago when Mann basked in the accolades of leading a movement that was all the rage, and received endless kudos for his hockey stick. Now Mann is under attack for the hockey stick which has been shown to be a bullshit fabrication, and global warming climate change is no longer the cool or in thing, and one of many reasons for that is that the debunked hockey stick was an essential part of the AGW scam.
    Tom Nelson shows a picture of a pitiful looking gathering and says: What a warmist scientist conclave looks like during the dying days of the global warming hoax. Can we see Mann (balding) in the picture (see link) near the middle of third row from the back? I don’t know, it seems that person’s girth is not anywhere near enough to be Mann:

    • Mike says:

      Lots of professors in academia know the climate models are bogus yet still defend it. Holding back the dam of junk science is now a priority.

  4. Billy Liar says:

    Strange how half of Wisconsin and half of Alaska escaped glaciation.

    • philjourdan says:

      I noticed that as well. Precipitation patterns?

      • gator69 says:

        In Wisconsin, I’m sure the warming was caused by paleo dairy farmers’ cows, and Alaska was warmed by too much ice in Illinois.

      • Richard T. Fowler says:

        In the case of Alaska, most of those white areas were probably either underwater (and thus covered by permanent sea ice) or subject to alpine glaciers, which would not be indicated because are a distinct phenomenon from continental glaciers.

        In the case of Wisconsin I suspect that elevation is the strongest factor, i.e. an area of higher elevation causing the continental ice to slide down into lower areas and stay there; but it also occurs to me that this is far from an exact science, and it may be that they only include areas for which they had credible geological evidence of glaciation, which would obviously tend to exclude a lot of area that only received mild glaciation for a short time.

        It would be interesting to see the paper that went with this map.


    • Glacierman says:

      The area in Wisconsin is the Wisconsin Dells. This area contains unique rock formations that could not have survived under a glacial ice sheet. It is known not to have been covered, not only because of the rock formations, but because there is no glacial drift found there. It is refered to as a “Driftless Area”.

    Steven, Please tell me where you found that image. I would love to use it and have a source link!

  6. Kaboom says:

    There would be less gun crime in Chicago if they had a mile of ice on top of them.

    Reblogged this on Climatism and commented:
    Praying for a successful climate deal in Paris so we can avoid climate change and enjoy a stable and pleasant climate, just like it was in the past…
